Our team at Hudson Tree Services has extensive experience in the tree care and management business, and we want to help you care for the trees on your property. We strive to keep trees healthy for their own sake and make sure they don’t create problems for your building.
For example, if you have a tree with a weak structure, we can give it the support it needs to resist damage through tree cabling and bracing. In this article, we’ll provide some key information you should know about this technique so you can understand how it works and the benefits it offers.
- What is tree cabling and bracing? The purpose of tree cabling and bracing is to give a weak or lopsided tree some reinforcement and support to prevent it from getting damaged or from damaging something else. Our experts will assess the trunk and branch structure of your tree, then install support cables and rods to reinforce weak limbs and redistribute the weight of heavy branches more evenly across the tree’s structure. With this extra support, the tree will be more able to withstand storms and heavy winds, and you won’t have to worry about branches breaking and falling during a severe weather event.
- How is tree cabling and bracing maintained? The other main thing we want you to know about tree cabling and bracing is that it’s not a one-and-done solution. Your tree will continue to grow over time, which means you’ll need to have us reassess its natural structure and the structure of the supports every so often in order to make adjustments. Additionally, the cables and braces we use will wear out over time, so we’ll need to keep an eye on their condition and replace them as necessary.
